The League of Married Gentlemen: More Data Needed

Ever since I got married on April 30 and first put on my wedding ring, thereby joining the prestigious League of Married Gentlemen, I’ve been diligently watching and waiting for my new powers to manifest themselves. As noted in this previous post, so far there’s been nothing doing.

Ring powers: go!
I joined the League of Married Gentlemen. But where are my Ring Powers!?

I’ve realized I’m probably going to have to pay closer attention. Maybe my ring’s powers are more subtle than I had expected. So I’ve begun cataloguing relevant events and experiences. Hopefully this data will provide me with clues that will help me unravel the mystery of my as yet unknown abilities.

So far, I’m pretty sure that my skin hasn’t developed any added toughness. I haven’t noticed any improved healing speed, either. One or both of those would have been great, but c’est la vie.

Today I gathered some strong evidence that my wrist strength and agility haven’t been positively affected. I played a couple of sets of tennis with my brother, Jordan, and he defeated me handily, with scores of 6-1, 6-3. That’s hardly conclusive, but it is suggestive. I think I’ll focus my attention elsewhere for now.

I’ll keep you posted as new patterns emerge. I’m going to solve this thing.
